***FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE***
STATEMENT FROM SUPERTOOL’S FOUNDER REGARDING THE TRANSPORTATION OF A FIREARM WHILE IN NEW JERSEY
As a US Marine Corps veteran, I understand the importance of not only self-defense but also eliminating any tactical limitations in an ever changing environment. I’m sure most of you have heard the motto of the Marines Corps as “Semper Fi” or “Always faithful” but there’s also another play on words we use, “Semper Gumby” or “Always flexible”.
Unfortunately we have people in America that have been working tirelessly to strip us of our rights. As law abiding citizens, in order to remain law abiding, we have to adapt to our legal environment in order to remain tactically functional while traveling across state lines.
As a citizen that loves my country and my fellow Americans, I would also like to share with you some valuable changes in the transport requirements regarding your ability to carry to defend yourself while transporting firearms in NEW JERSEY.
Lastely, I would like to introduce you to our new Magnetic Cases which are faster than a traditional holster plus provide the ability to carry in all 50 States across the country.
Have you ever heard the following?
“It is illegal to carry a firearm while in New Jersey without a carry permit.” While this is true, this only pertains to a firearm attached to your body. If the firearm is transported in your vehicle, firearms transport laws are then applied.
So this means I can carry a firearm in my vehicle?
Yes. As long as you are following the transport requirements set by the state of New Jersey…
Transporting a Firearm Into / Through the State of New Jersey | New Jersey State Police Firearms Information
“All firearms transported into the State of New Jersey:
- Shall be carried unloaded and contained in a closed and fastened case, gunbox, securely tied package, or locked in the trunk of the automobile in which it is being transported, and in the course of travel, shall include only such deviations as are reasonably necessary under the circumstances.
- The firearm should not be directly accessible from the passenger compartment of the vehicle. If the vehicle does not have a compartment separate from the passenger compartment, the firearm and ammunition must be in a locked container other than the vehicle’s glove compartment or console.
For additional exemptions refer to Chapter 39, namely 2C:39-6g.“
I heard that Governor Christie recently loosened gun control restrictions?
This is true although the governor only loosened restrictions on concealed carry permit approvals. While this is a good thing the Governor did for us, please be aware that if you do not have a concealed carry permit, you still have to follow the transport requirements stated above.
